The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Erika Girardi has three different closets in her mansion, all packed with amazing designer pieces. But there's one type of shoe you won't find in any of Erika's closets. For Erika, it's high heels or nothing. Preferably Christian Louboutin heels.
"I think my one weakness is I probably have too many shoes," Erika explained to People magazine in a video tour of one of her enviable closets. "Most of them are Christian Louboutin and they are as high as possible. The reason for that is because you know, you just look better. The feminine form is just sexier in the highest heel possible. Flats are for quitters, at least in my book, so pumps only.”
She feels very strongly about flats, apparently! She might face some pushback from America on this: last week, the Washington Post reported that women are picking flats or sneakers over pumps: sales of high heels dropped 12 percent last year, according to the NPD Group’s retail tracking service.
Erika's collection of sky-high stilettos is gorgeous to look at though, and more power to her if she can tackle everything she does — from book publishing to Erika Jayne duty — in Louboutins.
